My laptop's wifi driver suddenly started crashing and generally not working. A reboot did not fix.

A system upgrade fixed it. Good thing I always carry around a recovery flash drive in my wallet.

@fred as much as big tech sucks, i can count the number of times i needed to boot a restore distro to fix trivial peripheral errors on my old macbook on zero hands :blobmelt:

@icedquinn The keyword is old.

This wifi adapter is so new that many distros such as Ubuntu don't support it yet. Kernels 5.2 and up.

@fred i meant more that macOS devices don't have problems like linux ones do.

@icedquinn fair point, but you might still find this Intel adapter (AX200) in Macbooks sometime.
